Covid report: face masks

Postby GoogaMooga » 30 Aug 2020, 02:16

It had to happen. Just like the T-shirts back in the 1960's, you can now get face masks with motifs. Even ornate ones, like the "Alien" one doing the rounds now. Now, it is questionable how effective those masks are. The ones used in hospitals (not sure if they are the surgical masks) are supposed to be 95% effective. The fashion ones, with nifty motifs, only 50%. Anyway, if I were to make a quick buck, I'd print a batch of masks with the wording: "Covid by Christmas". Yes, it's oblique humor. Credit to Zilth Pilchards for coming up with it. Spending so long all alone in my space age bachelor pad, I sometimes talk to myself. Not a conversation, just a good line. And tonight I must have uttered "Covid by Christmas" dozens of times!
